    I like looking at images of birds and reading the discussions that accompany them. These sorts of comments add nothing.

    Chiff Chaff - Anglesey 06/03/2022

    Spot on - its in a pig pen which gets scattered with mixed seed when the animals are absent. Lots of species love it, not usually chiff chaffs

    Chiff Chaff - Anglesey 06/03/2022

    This bird is still hanging around my garden, very active but still no sound. It spends almost all of its time foraging on the ground, something I don't usually associate with chiff chaffs. Am I wrong to make this association?

    Another Shark attack, Australia

    In the linked article: 'a standard pattern for great whites is to make an initial devastating attack and then wait for the prey to weaken before consuming' Because humans normally swim in pairs they may have a chance to help each other to the shore or a boat, which seals can't.

    Walrus now in Northumberland?

    I feel like the aim is to keep the people safe. If someone gets too close and injures themselves the walruses days might become numbered?

    Stonechat - Cornwall (this weekend)

    I have put in another request for the original image. Thankyou for all the ideas, its always interesting to hear what others see when the image is poor. I had not considered many of the suggestions. For what its worth I am no longer thinking stone chat, my imaginary money is split between bull...

    Stonechat - Cornwall (this weekend)

    I agree, The bill seems a bit small but I think I can see the wing bar of a bullfinch

    Stonechat - Cornwall (this weekend)

    I agree, I did ask and unfortunately this is all I have to go off. Personally I don't believe its as large as suggested, given the quality it could be one of many (e.g. chat or finch). I wonder if its an escapee, if so, I have no experience

    Stonechat - Cornwall (this weekend)

    A friend sent me this photo. They think it was close to the size of a Magpie. There could be a colour ring on it, but the photo is not good. It looks like a stonechat to me?

    Juvenile swallow - Anglesey - 2020-12-05

    Many of the photographs have showed the 'white windows' on the tail. At first I thought it was an artefact of the photos but I'm beginning to think they are actually there. I did wonder whether it had lost its tail at some point recently (e.g. via a predator) - possibly delaying its migration...

    Juvenile swallow - Anglesey - 2020-12-05

    Its been flying around Llangoed, I spotted it yesterday when it occasionally takes advantage of some puddles / flies in my garden. There are some better photos on route, I feel its looking like a swallow more and more.

    I suppose this has to be a juvenile swallow? - albeit not in great condition
